A local teenage girl named Muru, observes the actions of Lupin’s crew. She envisions Fujiko as the legendary island mermaid and a madam. Jigen is a “dandy” who’s in love with her. Goemon is a poor student, forced to wear samurai clothing to save money. As such, she draws and writes a story to match.

Thoughts/Review:

This is going to be a short review. Why? ‘Cause Lupin the Third Part 6 – 21 is just “meh” at best. Yes, it tries to be cute by having a cute teen girl’s imagination run wild. But I didn’t care. This was just a random adventure that has NOTHING to do with the story. And such storytelling is piss poor at best.

Were this the old Lupin III with episodic stories, then it would have been fine. But in a series that is supposed to tell a serial story, random side tales don’t fit.

From a fanservice point of view, it was fun seeing Lupin and crew in a Fiat 500, filled with loot. But alas, that’s the only good I can find in a random episode within a series that’s supposed to be about Lupin’s “mom”.
